Announcement   Palm Oil Free Asian Inspired Organic Soaps, Organic Lotion Bars, Wood Wick Soy Candles, Detox Bath Teas and More!

Thanks for stopping by my Etsy store! Check out my Thai-Asian infused handmade soaps. They are inspired by my mother's Thai cooking (yum!) and Asian herbal medicine. All soaps are cold process soaps made in small batches. I use Certified Organic Olive Oil, Certified Organic Coconut Oil, Certified Shea Butter, and other luxurious certified organic vegetable oils. No palm oil is used in hopes of raising awareness of it's devastating effects on the deforestation rate in Indonesia and Malaysia (world's top producers of palm oil).

All soaps are vegan, all natural, contain essential oils, no chemical preservatives, and no synthetic fragrances. Each soap is beautifully hand wrapped with flower seeded paper that will bloom wildflowers when planted.

I donate a portion of every purchase towards the adoption of endangered orangutans. Due to the rapid rate of deforestation in Indonesia and Malaysia , orangutans are losing their habitation and could become extinct within 12 years. For more information please visit http://www.orangutan.net/

About

Palm Oil Free, Vegan, and Rain Forest Friendly

Unearth Malee (pronounced mah - lee) is a wonderful outlet where I can do what I love and share the benefits of traditional Asian herbs, remedies, Eastern beauty rituals with everyone. Each recipe is custom tailored, researched, and tested on willing family, friends, and interested customers.

In the art of soapmaking, I have been fortunate to use it as a platform for raising awareness of the environmental and social consequences of the destruction of rainforests in Indonesia and Malaysia to create palm oil plantations. Creating Palm Oil Free recipes has been from the start of Unearth Malee, a challenge, but forever eye opening to the devastation it causes on the habitats of rain forest animals like orangutans, who are on the edge of extinction.

Everything about Unearth Malee stems from passion -- love of art, love of finding the beauty in what nature provides, love of enjoying the simple things, and knowing that there is level of integrity behind every creation.

I love what I do, and have found so much enjoyment in sharing my passion with you.

Thank you for stopping at my Etsy page,

Marie, "Malee" is my Thai name.

Thank you for visiting my Unearth Malee Etsy Store.

I started Unearth Malee as a means to provide organic bodycare with a twist...an Asian twist. With sensitivities to fragrance oils and chemical-laden products, I decided to create my own, but with common ingredients I grew up with. You will find exotic blends along with traditional herbs and spices...a sort of East meets West...but with lots of bubbles.

Peace and light,
Marie

Additional policies and FAQs
What does Unearth Malee mean?

Unearth Malee is a variety of meanings. “Malee” refers to a specific Thai jasmine flower. Malee is also a family Thai name passed down three generations in my family. Another meaning of Unearth Malee is a more emotionally grounded one. It is an unleashing of the culture within oneself and allowing it to develop into something beautiful and natural. For a more in depth answer, please visit www.unearthmalee.com

Why Palm Oil Free?

Most commercial soaps primarily manufacture bars of soap with palm oil and/or palm kernel oil, which can be overdrying to the skin. The overconsumption of palm oil is one reason we do not use it. Researchers have found a link between palm oil and the deforestation of the rainforests in Indonesia and Malaysia. Palm oil plantations are directly destroying the habitat of orangutans and other rainforest animals. Sustainable palm oil is one solution, yet the standards for sustainability are not strictly enforced.

How are you an eco-friendly company?

Currently, all soap recipes are made of at least 84% certified organic oils. Some are close to 96%. I strive to use organic ingredients when possible. The paper labels are embedded with wildflower seeds and are plantable. The paper itself is lotka paper, made from the bark of the Daphne bush which regenerates naturally providing a renewable resource. By using this specific paper, we are benefiting the economic enterprise of rural craftspeople in Nepal.

What do you mean by Asian Inspired?

All of our products are inspired by Marie’s Thai-American background. She infuses common Asian ingredients with western herbs and oils.

What Is your Shipping Policy?

We ship via USPS. Depending on the size of the order, the order will be shipped either USPS First Class Mail or USPS Priority Mail.
